I would say this is one of the best place in Goa where you can get rejuvenated. The place is surrounded with lots of greenery and the plus point is it pollution free. In cities we have busy and polluted environment with smoke, dust and...More

Was mildly disappointed with this one. The entire spice tour lasted about 15mins, excluding the waiting. Didn’t show a whole lot of spices, neither explained much. Started off with a welcome drink, then the tour, and then lunch. Lunch was pretty good.

Elephant rides have been discontinued. This is still a wonderful place to visit. Almost all varieties of spices growing in a jungle format. And a delicious meal is included in the ticket price. You can also buy fresh spices.
